I’m so excited about being in Vogue Paris this month. It was so much fun having the team at my home, and being photographed by the talented Matthew Kristall. Emmanulle Alt and Capucine Safyurtlu was okaying everything from Paris over the phone. So fancy. I’m wearing my favorite vintage dress and chill dungarees by Frame denim, Celine loafers, Acne jeans, Alexander Wang sweater, Calvin Klein Collection blue woolen cropped top and mens cloud sweater, Elizabeth & James cropped baby blue corduroy jeans, Alaïa cutout boots, Miu Miu mirrored skirt and Carven maroon cropped top
My rescue dog Hillary Clinton accompanied me on the shoot, and didn’t mind the attention at all. Her first shoot ever! You may wonder how she got her name. She needed a new start after having lived with people that didn’t treat her well. She was only 9 month and really scared and unsure of herself, so she needed a power name. I had just had some friends meeting Hillary Rodham Clinton, it came to mind and made perfect sense. I’ve had her for 5 months now, and she is full of life and so confident and happy. If you can rescue and adopt an animal, always do.
The holidays are coming and I’m not a big fan of matching the colours to whatever holiday it is. For this coming month I’ll automatically wear other things that red. There is enough red everywhere else to enjoy. I love winter white and pastel blue as it feels bright and fresh when gets dark out so early, and what doesn’t look better with those colours than orange! See my Beauty Mark episode where Lindey Wixson joins me in search of the best hue with the help of Vogue’s beauty editor Catherine Piercy.
Here’s a little tease on what’s to come from my Coveteur shoot for Mercedes Benz that is out in January. The first white dress is by Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti, the other white dress but with pink details is by Valentino, my favourite shoes at the moment are these white pony Calvin Klein Collection pumps with brushed gold detail, the very best anklet is a bespoke one by Jennifer Fisher.
It’s been so much fun wearing this lovely dress by Honor to all my meetings and shows today. At one point I was walking on 5th Avenue and felt like I was part of a old movie. New York does that a lot, and especially when the sun makes that perfect movie light that is reflecting in the all the windows on skyscrapers and tall buildings. Bag by Chanel and sunglasses by Oliver Goldsmith.
I wore this dreamy Calvin Klein Collection coat at the Dior FW13 show in Paris with a silver belt also by Calvin Klein Collection, the look probably inspired by this. The bag is by The Row and the shoes are by Acne.
Mira Duma wearing the best stripy ensemble after Rodarte.
Me at the Marni perfume launch in New York last night. I am wearing Marni head to toe, except for the bow that is self-made, a proper DIY. All you need is a ribbon, skills and patience to make a nice bow, safety pin to fasten it, et voila!
